Great illustration of butterfly's fluttering around some orange flowers. Perfect for summertime! Remember, most of the images you find on my site are scanned at 300 dpi and great for printing and using as in collage. They are also unmodified from the original scan so you might want to adjust the brightness and contrast of the image first. Hope you enjoy it.

Hand Dyed Seam Binding!

You know the economy is in the tank right now so I am always looking for ways to tighten my belt so to speak, but when you have the craft bug you know that can be a challenge! So this weekend I was taking stock of all my craft supplies and wondering "how can I make this myself?" First up is seam binding, now who doesn't love the pretty crinkly strands of brightly colored rayon! I had bought some white seam binding to try and dye it myself instead of buying it already colored. I like the dyed binding better than the straight colors since it adds more contrast and little highlights you don't get with just plain colors. So I got out my dyes and played around with them and this is what I came up with. Aren't they lovely? I especially like the red/ cranberry color, it will look great on my holiday tags this year.  So how do you all like them? Have you tried making any dyed seam binding yourself?
